I needed a sound card for my Compaq 486. So I got a SoundBlaster 16 from Ebay. Stupidly I just thought that all ISA SoundBlaster cards work just by setting jumpers and making a tweak to your AUTOEXEC.BAT. Not in this case, it's a Plug n' Play (Vibra) card from 1995, more likely designed for Windows 95 or better.
So I made this video to shows you how to physically install the card into a PC, as well as configure the card with the Creative CTCM tool in DOS to make the card work in Plug n' Play mode. Then there's a demo. Where I play DooM. Of course!
Ever tried to get a jumperless PnP ISA sound blaster card working on DOS? Here's how!
